Arbor 2014 Element Snowboard : Riding one part of the mountain all day... ain't nobody got time for that! Hop on the Arbor Element Snowboard and take on the entire mountain, from groomers, to park, to surfing backcountry pow. The Element features Arbor's Mountain System Rocker, which gives the board a directional twin shape and a "True-Rocker" design to dominate the entire mountain. Other features such as Arbor's Mystic core, UN3 Progressive Sidecuts, and Progression Base, make the Element lightweight with great edgehold and a surprising amount of pop and response. High-end performance with a do-it-all design, the Arbor Element Snowboard is the perfect board for today's ride-it-all addicts.
System Rocker - A "True-Rocker" design based on the parabolic arc; a shape that gradually reduces the amount of rocker toward the tips. This ensures that the outside contact points are close enough to the snow to reengage when maximum edge control is needed: Loaded Turns, higher speeds, bigger landings. Arbor's parabolic rocker provides an additional layer of on-demand edge control, without sacrificing any true-rocker performance.
Medium Flex - A responsive flex that remains playful and forgiving enough for a fun ride that can handle any terrain.
Directional-Twin Shape - A directional twin shape with a slightly drawn out nose, perfect for on-mountain, backcountry, and deep snow performance
UN3 Progressive Sidecut (Grip Tech) - Unblended tri-radial, better turning, initiation, stability. Grip Tech is a sidecut design that creates four additional contact points under foot for significantly improved, more direct edge control. The new contacts also create heel and toe pivot points that make turning faster and more efficient. Grip-Tech allows Arbor to offer a "True-Rocker" profile with powerful edge control, and thus preserve the full range of associated performance benefits. Grip-Tech also allows riders with larger feet (up to US men's 12) to ride standard width shapes.
Mystic Core - A light grade of FSC poplar reinforced with two tip-to-tail bamboo axels; lively, durable, and fun
Mixed Glassing - A triax over biax lay-up that's best for versatile on-mountain and park riding.
Rhythm Walls - An advanced blend of ABS and urethane; deliver durability and a clean, acoustically damp ride.
Progression Base - A high molecular weight, continuous sintered material that provides durability and reduced weight.
Recycled Steel Edges - Max edge durability and performance, made with 60% recycled hardened steel.
Bio-Film - Hi-gloss film, 30% bio-plastic, protects top while replacing biologically harmful clear coat.
Power Ply Topsheet - Sustainably sourced structural wood, delivers improved return, durability, and weight.
